The detail shows the background of the painting. The palace at the left has no wall and the dreaming pope can be seen in his bedroom. At the steps of the palace the patrician and his wife view the Mother of God in snow-white glory in the sky. On the right, in front of the Lateran Palace people are gathering, discussing the miracle and forming a procession.
